I Want

Thinking about making the perfect vintage repro bather before Summer. The following pieces have inspired me to start drawing some designs and get Momma to help me sew (read: probably do most of the sewing).

A little introspection has led to the following concerns about how these suits may fare in reality:
a)I have tits
b)I am not 5'11"

Regardless of these factors, I can't help but attempt a pilot model in hopes of achieving something conclusively wearable. (The DVF and Abaeté make me drool the most).

Norma Kamali, Marc Jacobs (obviously), and Eres also have some gorgeous suits. It seems I currently have a tendency to favour ruffles of any kind- the bigger the better. Sweet sweet Summer, return to me!
